for Newton, to whom prophecy was the very essence of revelation,the most essential thing about Christ was not his special relationto god but his special relation to prophecy. To the original trueworship of the sons of Noah, he asserted, "Nothing more hasbeen added... with relation to Jesus Christ then to believe inthe predictions of the holy Ghost by the Prophets concerning him,viz that he is the Messiah and the son of man predicted by Danieland ye son of God predicted by David in the 2nd Psalm, and theLamb of god predicted in ye Pascal Lamb by Moses, andc."[Yahuda MS 7.3k, no. f. before f. 1.] Whenever Newton attemptedto summarize the true religion in a series of articles, a furtheraspect of the special relation of Jesus to prophecy always appeared.
